Labour has called for Matt Hancock to graciously apologise after telling an A&E doctor MP who raised concerns with MP Matt Hancock because he told her to watch her tone but Matt Hancock has been blasted over his jibe to Labour MP Rosena Allin-Khan in the House of Commons.
The Shadow Mental Health Minister said that she would not watch her tone when dozens of NHS and care staff are dying needlessly.
Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary Jon Ashworth called on the Health Secretary to apologise.
The person who got the tone wrong was Matt Hancock and he should graciously apologise to Rosina Allin-Khan, not because she’s the Shadow Health Minister because she’s an A&E doctor working on the frontline.
And what she brought to the House of Commons was her firsthand experience of the NHS staff on the frontline dealing with this horrific pandemic.
NHS workers are on the frontline, putting themselves in danger to care for everyone and she shouldn’t have been reprimanded or dismissed for that, and instead of Matt Hancock telling her to watch her tone, he should be kissing her backside for all she’s doing on the frontline in the NHS.
Front line workers like Dr Allin-Khan have to watch families crumble into bits when they have to deliver the very worst of news to them, and during health and social care questions in the House of Commons, the MP alleged that the government’s policy on testing had been non-existent, implying that the testing figures are now being manipulated.
She added: “Does the Secretary of State commit to a minimum of 100,000 tests each day going forward? And does the Secretary of State acknowledge that many frontline workers feel that the government’s lack of testing has cost lives?”
The testing strategy has been non-existent with community testing being scrapped. Mass testing was slow to roll out and testing figures are now being manipulated and has the Secretary of State committed to a minimum of 100,000 tests each day going forward?
Does the Secretary of State accept that numerous frontline workers feel that the Government’s lack of testing has cost lives and is responsible for countless families being needlessly ripped apart from grief?
Yet Matt Hancock said he embraced the distinguished lady to her post as part of the shadow health team but that she might do well to take a leaf out of the shadow secretary of state’s book in terms of tone.
Matt Hancock said that what she had said wasn’t correct and that there had been a speedy acceleration in testing over the last few months, including getting to 100,000 tests a day.
Dr Allin-Khan later tweeted a video of their dialogue with the inscription: “I will respectfully challenge the Government – I want our country to succeed. However, I will not ‘watch my tone’ when dozens of NHS and care staff are dying unnecessarily.”
Her tone was fine, polite and her view is more informed when it comes to the front line than the Health Secretary and I can’t imagine why he doesn’t like her, perhaps it’s because she’s telling the truth and all the Tories do is lie.
And Matt Hancock needs firing for telling lies about the COVID 19 tests of 100,000 plus that has never happened, only in his imagination – soon he’ll be telling us that the moon is made out of cheese, but then the Tories have got it spot on when it comes to bullying.
This lady is a qualified doctor with expertise working on the front line, what is Matt Hancock, other than a puffed-up, self-important chancer? He might have a BA in philosophy politics and economics which means that he’s not even remotely equipped to question a medical doctor.
I mean, is it safe to let Matt Hancock out into the world or does he need a leash now and a muzzle? All sounds a tad kinky to me.
Does that also suggest that the general public shouldn’t be asking questions about our fellow citizens dying or should we all watch our tone as well?
Or should we all stand back and applaud the fact that the United Kingdom has the highest death toll in Europe. Maybe instead of cheering for the NHS workers, we should be cheering that people are dead and of course, the government always look the other way.
It should be Matt Hancock that should be apologising to the families of the 30,000 who have needlessly died because of their offensive austerity policies, health cuts and genocidal herd immunity nonsense, and then he can apologise for being a lying, manipulating, browbeating weasel.
She was articulate and to the point unlike Matt Hancock who came across as a typical entitled public schoolboy and he still really hasn’t acknowledged the doctor’s question, all he keeps doing is going round in circles so that he might distract everyone.
This Tory government has annihilated over 30,000 voters, do you think that they will and their families vote for murderers again? Yet they appear to be able to do whatever they like. They could wear a swastika armband and have f*ck the NHS tattooed on their forehead and they’ll still be privatising the NHS by stealth for many years to come.
